ODBD April Release and some April Fool's Fun!



Today is April Fool's Day, and the sticks in the bread basket have been up to a little mischief! More about that in a minute. First, here are the basics on today's release and how you can win a gift certificate to purchase some of these fantastic new sets!

For today's New Release at ODBD, we are not doing a "formal Blog Hop", but the team has all posted a card using the new sets and are linking each other in their posts. There are no secret words or letters to collect. However, just like in a blog hop, there will be prizes for viewing every DT's blog, leaving comments on all those you can, and returning to the ODBD Blog to tell us you have done so. Two winners will be randomly chosen from those who do this, and they will each receive a $15.00 Gift Certificate toward stamps from the ODBD Store. (Note: the ODBD Blog can now take anonymous comments so everyone should be able to do this and if anyone cannot make a comment on any designer's blog, just state that in the comment at the end on the ODBD Blog) You have until 8PM Eastern on April 2 to complete these requirements.

Now for the fun part!!! Today being April Fool's Day, we decided it would be fun to play a little game with the new release sets. We each cased another DT member and then sent our card to that person to post on their blog today. The fun is going to be that Kelley  is being asked to guess who created which card. She is being asked to make a list of each DT member and write next to their name who she thinks made the card they posted. It's all just in fun, but if you'd like to play along, we'd love to have you! You can email your guesses to me at: gnywening@yahoo.com up until 8PM Eastern on April 2. ONLY ONE email please! The one or ones (in the case of a tie) who correctly guessed the most will be given recognition on the ODBD Blog when all the entries have been checked.

Here is the recipe for this  card:

Our Daily Bread designs Happy Father's Day!
Memento Tuxedo Black and Tim Holtz Vintage Photo
Chocolate Chip, Kraft cardstocks and Parisian Breeze dsp
Neenah White cardstock
copics
Manly Brads ( I cut off the brad part and glued on with glue dots)


Now to continue the fun, here are the next three designers after me:
Dawn

Have fun and I can't wait to see your guesses!  I hope you'll play along on our April Foolery!

Now what repecting carpenter would not like to recieve this card. the colors are so "man" like and I think the brads or "screws" are just perfect for this.
